Private? Public?

The post just below revolves around an open records request for the records of a nominally private group, a private non-profit set up to manage the affairs of a public park (Piedmont Park) in Atlanta, Georgia. As you can see, in that case, a judge just ordered a private party to pay over $200,000 in legal fees to the non-profit that runs the (public) park simply for having the temerity to ask for some public accountability.

How different from the next post below that, where a judge says that a private prison in Tennesse must open its records, and how different from a recent Wisconsin Supreme Court ruling, State of Wisconsin v. Beaver Dam Area Development Corporation, where a judge said that the nominally private BDADC is subject to Wisconsin’s open records law.
